I love this school, the curriculum is great. Very glad my grand kids go here...the teachers are awesome.


Posted August 22, 2013

My son finished elementary at this school and my daughter is a student now. I could not hope to find a better school. The teachers and administrators are dedicated and care about each student. Parents are involved and encouraged to be a part of their child's education. My son was in the Special Education program and I was amazed at his progress. My daughter had the VERY BEST Kindergarten teacher and left Kinder reading and writing at a very high level. Kudos to DCLP!!

This school is amazing! My daughter will complete her first year at this school in June. You cannot find a better teacher than Ms. Childers in first grade! She has been absolutely fantastic with my child and has shown genuine interest in ensuring this school year has run smoothly. My daughter really bloomed in all class subjects, and has developed a wonderful self-confidence that was not present before attending this school. The principal is a very involved leader as well. Thank you to the CLP staff and faculty!

We moved to Texas a year ago from Maryland. I was worried because the schools are much larger and I still wanted my children to get quality personal attention. CLP is an outstanding school. The principal is outstanding and very caring. The teachers are wonderful and really care for the kids. Even being at the school for the first year, it still felt like everyone knew my children. Ms. Alvarez is the perfect kindergarten teacher. My son was also in the special education program and he flourished. During the year he learned to read! this given the fact that the previous year his teachers could barely teach him his colors. I'm so impressed and would recommend this school to anyone who is considering a move to the DFW area.

DCLP is a fantastic school, everyone loves the kids they teach like their own. We have a lot of activities and classes for the kids that aren't offered everywhere. They also encourage parental involvment more than i've found elsewhere and even allow parents who want to volunteer to come in with smaller children who are always welcomed in the classroom.

Cullins Lake-Pointe is a wonderful school in our district. The administration, teachers and staff truly believe that all students can succeed. The attitude is 'whatever it takes' to help the child. We are very fortunate to have dedicated parents that regularly volunteer and help our school. There is a sense of family when you step inside our doors -- we may be large , but there is a unique sense of relationships that is felt inside.

One or both of my children have attended Cullins for the past 7 years and I have always been very pleased and proud for my children to attend Cullins. The principal, teachers and staff are top notch. My son just graduated from Cullins to Junior High last year and my daughter is now in the first grade at Cullins. My Son has Dyslexia/ADHD and they have helped him tremendously over the years. You can't beat Cullins Lakepointe

This school is excellent all the way around. Where else does the principal stand at the front door every morning and greet each and every child? My child is learning disabilities and dyslexia, and this school was quick to get to the bottom of it so he could get the help he needed as soon as possible. Everyone there is always very, very positive. My only complaint is the lack of the subject of 'handwriting' at this school. Handwriting is not a subject, and I was told by many employees of the school that is just 'briefly' introduced after I brought the subject up because my son writes so badly. Other than that, though, this school is wonderful.

As a parent with a high maintenance child,I was very impressed witht he level of involvement from the admin. Staff. They kept me very involved w my sons performance,behavior and called regular meetings w me to discuss his progress. Had some attitude issues w some ofthe 6th grade teaching staff, but all in all I was very pleased with the handling of my son.

My children have attended CLP for 5 years. I would like to say that this school is top notch. From the Principal to the teachers, they take their responsibility of teaching the kids and being great role models very serious. My son's teacher, Ms. McGovern has a passion for teaching like I have never seen. The school offers so much for the kids, art, music, band in 6th grade, health education in PE. It's just incredible. We recently found out that we are moving to another state and I am finding out just how much other schools do not have! Thank you Cullins-Lake Pointe for 5 great years of education with integrity.

STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
